2ND WOMEN’S BUSINESS SUMMIT ON E-COMMERCE

Oct. 23, 2001 – The V.I. Women's Business Center in conjunction with the St. Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce will host its second annual E-Commerce summit on Thursday at St. Croix's Divi Carina Bay Resort.
The second annual event will be held at the Divi Carina Bay hotel and Casino on St. Croix from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be followed by the Caribbean Women's Business Exposition on Friday and Saturday at Sunshine Mall.
According to Yvette deLaubanque, director of the WBC, the Center is cognizant of the fact that the advent of the Internet has contributed significantly to the change in the way business is conducted in the 21st century. Mindful of the unique geographic and cultural position of the U.S. Virgin Islands in relation to other Caribbean nations, and business opportunities offered in the US Virgin Islands, deLaubanque said the WBC is encouraging dialog not only within the territory but through out the region.
The town hall summit will be held on Thursday. There is a $25 registration fee and includes continental breakfast and lunch. The intent of this town hall summit is to bring together small Businesses, Industry experts, E-commerce and E-Business supporters and developers from the region with the WBC, other technical support organizations, and members of the community.
The Divi Carina Bay hotel and resort is offering a rate of $65 plus tax per night, from Oct. 24 – Oct. 28. To receive the special rate, deLaubanque said individuals must be registered for either the WBC E-Commerce Summit on Oct 25 or the Caribbean Business Exposition on Oct. 26 and 27.
Additionally, deLaubanque said that for people traveling between St. Thomas and St. Croix, Seaborne Airlines is offering a discounted rate of $55 one way if travel is done between 6 a..m. and 9 a.m. or after 4:30 p.m. Travel done at any other time will cost $50 one way. You must say that you are with the WBC to get this rate.
